has some color concerns ands urging people "not" to hand a popular candy to trick-or-treaters. julie was on the consumerwatch explai. halloween tomorrow and a consumer watchdog group urges people not to hand out a popular candy to the trick or treaters. julie watts on the consumerwatch explains why. reporter: it's a halloween favorite that's been around for years. >> i love m and ms. >> i like them. >> reporter: but not everyone likes the bright red, yellow, blue, green and brown m&ms sold in the u.s. >> they are loaded with food dyes. >> reporter: michael jacobson is leading a campaign to convince the maker of m and ms to stop coloring the candy with artificial dyes like blue 1, yellow 5 and red 40. >> these food dyes trigger hyperactivity or other behavioral problems in children. >> reporter: the fda acknowledges that artificial dyes are a problem but only for some children. a report published two years
ago found artificial dyes may exacerbate problems in children established to hyperactivity in other kids. however, that's already led to change in europe. products with artificial dyes there must carry a warning label. so to get around that, m&ms sold in europe are now colored with natural dyes that are a little less vibrant. >> why don't they do that here? why do we need chemicals? >> reporter: jacobson says it's largely about money. >> synthetic food dyes tend to be brighter, more stable and much cheaper than natural colorings. >> reporter: but many say it shouldn't be about money; it should be about health, especially on halloween. >> even if your own child isn't affected, some of the trick or treaters might be. >> reporter: now, mars the maker of m&ms says it has absolute confidence in the safety of all of its ingredients. the petition to
change m&ms now has more than 104,000 signatures. and it might sound familiar. the same group targeted clear yoes a few weeks ago demanding it be made the same way here as in europe without gmos. >> that's a tough train to stop. >> reporter: it won't be. >> what happened to the ones you brought to the newsroom? >> gone in two minutes. >> reporter: i can't tell you how many people who walked by my desk and said, can i have those? >> they need to make them less addictive. >> i like them the way they are. [ laughter ] >> better for our waistlines. >> mm-hm. one neighbor won't be giving kids tricks or treats this halloween. instead, she will give a message to any child she feels is overweight. the north dakota woman plans to give children she thinks are moderately obese this letter. it tells parents, quote, step up and stop unhealthy eating habits. she spoke about her decision on a local radio show.
>> just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight. i think it's just really irresponsible of parents to sort of send them out looking for free candy just because all the other kids are doing it. >> some psychologists say a person's appearance doesn't necessarily reflect if they are healthy or not. they say the letter is a bad idea and it might do more damage than good. now for a look at what's ahead on the "cbs evening news." scott pelley is in new york. scott. >> reporter: hi, allen and liz. great to be with you in the bay area. well, now there's evidence that the federal healthcare website has security flaws. late today, the president took owner ship of the problems and we'll tell you what he had to say. plus, does head gear in youth football and soccer prevent concussions? we'll have the results of a major new medical study out tonight. those stories and the "cbs evening news" at 5:30 right after kpix 5 news. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
